Good France, 2ⁿᵈ service! [fr]
Following the success of the first event, Laurent Fabius decided to make Goût de France / Good France an annual event. Every 21 March, French gastronomy and the values it promotes are thus celebrated all around the world.
On the occasion of the launch of 2016’s event, the Minister and Alain Ducasse presented the participating restaurants, in countries all around the world. In the end, more than 1500 restaurants worldwide have been selected for the Goût de France / Good France event of 21 March 2016.
With almost a third of foreign tourists citing gastronomy and wine as some of the main aspects that drew them to visit France, the Goût de France / Good France event highlights the French art de vivre and its local produce, while promoting France as a destination.
In addition to the 1500 participating restaurants, our embassies were also fully involved in organizing the event, and were holding their own dinners, hosted by the ambassadors.
